We're in Bonifacio, at Corsica's southern-most tip. We arrived after a short drive down the east coast. Bonifacio is built on chalk-white limestone which has been eaten away by the ocean, leaving parts of the town precariously cantilevered over the sea. The old town, what you see in the first picture, is very charming, a warren of old buildings and narrow streets, outdoor cafes and shops.

Tomorrow's hike will be along this ridge. It passes a military radar station and ends at the lighthouse of Pertusato. In the distance is the Italian island of Sardinia.
